Get Pumped

Do you ever hear a song and it just sets you off and gets you in the mood to get er dun? That feeling of being pumped is a great, energizing feeling. I get that feeling sometimes when I read theology and I just have to jump and move and bask in the wonderfulness of God.

For example, I am reading a chapter in Daniel L. Akin’s book A Theology for the Church titled The Doctrines of Christ, in which he discusses The Person of Christ. He is breaking down a “Christology from Above” referencing John 1. Here is a poem that he shares with the reader.

Light looked down and beheld darkness,
thither will I go said Light.
Life looked down and beheld death,
thither will I go said Life.
Love looked down and beheld dispair,
thither will I go said Love.
So came Light and shone truth,
So came Life and conquered death,
So came Love and gave hope.
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.”

Please go read it for yourself in John 1:1-18.

In the words of Pastor Larry Wood, “If that doesn’t get your fire going, then your wood is wet!”
